Indie underdogs The Snuts beat Pop superstar Demi Lovato in battle for number 1 album



In an amazing David and Goliath battle, Scottish Indie band The Snuts have claimed a number 1 in the UK Official Album Chart in a very close race against Pop superstar Demi Lovato.

The Snuts debut album ‘W.L.’ sneaked in with the win by only 272 album sales and also become the first Scottish band to have a debut album enter at number 1 since The View‘s debut album ‘Hats Off to The Buskers’ in 2007.

Celebrating the news, The Snuts told

This one is for all the fans who have proved that it’s possible to get a band like us to Number 1. Every copy you bought of this record goes a long way. It’s old school and it’s beautiful. Thanks very much, we love you.

The Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA) commented:

A huge congratulations to The Snuts for landing a UK Number 1 album with ‘W.L’. As the first Scottish group to do so with their debut record since The View‘s ‘Hats Off to the Buskers’ in 2007, this is an incredible achievement; not least at a time of significant challenges industry-wide.

Their success follows on from Mogwai claiming the Number 1 spot just a few weeks back with ‘As The Love Continues’, highlighting the strength, passion and determination from Scotland’s artists and music industry, and signifying an exciting and impactful period of engagement and connection with Scottish music.

Despite finishing runner up, Demi Lovato still claims her highest UK album chart with ‘Dancing With The Devil – The Art Of Starting Over’.
